We are bold in presenting our news as we move to all Maa counties across the country.

Kajiado governor aspirant Joseph Lenku said on Saturday he will end clan animosity that is already threatening to split the region in the middle.

Lenku said his aspiration to become the next governor of Kajiado is shaped by an inner calling to lead the people of the region out of poverty.

The former Interior CS, who was addressing hundreds of his supporters at Maasai Technical Training Institute in Kajiado town, took his time to attack governor David Nkedianye’s government.

“Nkedianye took office after he was elected in 2013 on the belief he had promised the youth he will stand by them and even empower them economically,” claimed Lenku.

He claimed the governor had placed a vibrant youth policy before the 2013 general election but rubbished the same once he took office.

“Our youth have no say in this government of Nkedianye. I am promising my supporters that I will not follow that path of lies to gain leadership,” said Lenku.

Lenku accused Nkedianye of adopting the ‘divide and rule’ mode of leadership which has now caused strain on the Maasai clans of Kajiado.

“He is now using the wealth he has immersed in the last four years to divide the people of Kajiado further by funding politician Tarayia Kores and George King’ori to spoil his (Lenku’s) bid in the party nominations,” claimed he.

He claimed Nkedianye knows the weakness of Kores and wants him to succeed in the JP nominations so they use the courts to block him from contesting like they did in 2013.

The former CS further alleged Nkedianye is not a Maasai and that is the reason he is “fighting” the Kikuyu to prove to the locals that he is one of them.

While reacting to Lenku’s remarks, Nkedianye’s personal assistant Jackson Sinkeet said the former CS’s remarks border on hate speech and should be made to record a statement with the police.

Sinkeet said it is unfortunate that a person who has served as a senior CS in Kenyatta’s Jubilee coalition could wash his dirty linen in public in the name of campaigning.

“Nkedianye’s record speaks volume and has no time for ‘wayward’ people like Lenku. If he is feeling jitters in Jubilee Party, he can as well move on to other parties because Nkedianye has no time for such people,” said Sinkeet.

On his part, Kores while responding on the phone denied receiving funds from Nkedianye to destabilize JP.
“This is now getting to another level because Lenku, it looks like, has decided to play dirty politics. I have my own capacity to fund my own campaigns,” said Kores.

Kores said he has all the valid documentations as demanded by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission for a governor candidate.
